About Recreation, Parks & Tourism Administration
About Our Programs
At Sacramento State, we are proud to be the oldest nationally accredited program of Recreation Administration in the CSU System.
The RPTA Department offers three Bachelor of Science degrees (Recreation and Park Management Recreation Therapy, and Hospitality and Tourism Administration), a Master of Science in Recreation Administration, two minors, and five academic certificate programs. Students are provided with broad-based curricula that include both theoretical in-class coursework and practical out-of-class field experience. Meet our faculty and staff through our welcome back video.
How to navigate our webpages
We now use a system that divides content into what most guests, visitors, prospective students, or prospective agency partners might find helpful (this webpage and through the links at the top right of this page), and content which is more relevant to our current students, faculty, and exisiting agency partners ( may be found at Inside RPTA).
In an effort to best serve our students, faculty and staff please reach us in our virtual waiting room and office:
